From bridal showers and wedding receptions, to rehearsal dinners and more, Entertainment Cruises offers beautifully unique spaces for all wedding-related events. Just ask Lauren C. She celebrated her special day aboard Spirit of Philadelphia earlier this year. Here’s what she had to say about her experience:
We booked our wedding well over a year in advance on the Spirit of Philadelphia. Throughout the entire process (beginning well before the standard two months prior to the date of our wedding) there was an open line of communication between myself and our event coordinator. Any questions I had, I felt 100% comfortable sending a quick email to ask. As our wedding day approached, there was more constant contact with our coordinator—she even gave me her cell number so I could call/text after hours if needed.
The day of, we were able to have everything dropped off to the location and she and the remainder of the staff took care of everything so that we and our bridal party could focus on getting ready and taking photos. The ceremony was beautiful on the observation deck with the Captain as our officiant—talk about original! During our reception, the entire staff went out of their way to make sure that not only my new husband and I were taken care of, but that our guests were as well. The food was amazing. It was prepared well and served hot and there was plenty of it for our guests!
The venue included dinner, optional bar packages, optional hors d’oeuvres, an optional wedding cake package (with an external vendor) and a DJ who we were able to meet before the wedding—and allowed us to provide as much or as little song guidelines as we wanted. So much was included that we had very little to worry about outside of the venue!
I would recommend this venue to anyone who is looking for a more unique venue. You can do as much or as little additional as you would like since there is already a ton of ambiance, class and natural beauty that comes with the location. Our service was amazing and now more than a month after the wedding, our family and friends still keep telling us what a great time they had and that it was the best wedding that they had ever gone to.
I give most of the credit to the staff that worked that night. Without them and the service they provided, so much could have been less than I imagined it would be. Instead, it was everything and more! It really was the perfect day and my husband and I thank the team of people that we worked with to make our day special, from the bottom of our hearts!
